Who Are You?

Soooooo, who are you?  No, I'm not quoting the famous The Who song of the same title, I'm actually asking!  This question popped into my head about myself this morning while I was getting dressed.  Who am I?  I guess I could answer that question in any number of ways.  I'm a woman.  I'm a wife.  I'm a mom.  I'm a teacher.  More importantly, though, I'm a Christian.

I was reminded of that fact this morning when I put on my cross necklace.  The cross on this particular necklace is special to me because it belonged to my dad's mother.  She died when I was only ten months old, so I didn't get to know her.  The cross necklace makes me feel close to her.  I was reminded of something with even more significance than my grandmother's memory, though.  I was reminded of who I am.  I am His and He is mine.

I think we forget that from time to time.  We forget that other people are His.  No matter whether you're a Republican or a Democrat or whatever political party you align yourself with, you are a creation of God, and THAT is what defines who you are.  I guess this is technically a message we could have used during the election what with the mudslinging and all.  Now that the mud has ceased to fly and we're headed into the holiday season, I think it's a great reminder for all of us.

Yes, I am The Political Chicken.  No, I am not the Religious Chicken, although I do tend to veer towards stories from the Bible in hopes to encourage you in your faith.  I know I've been encouraged just by writing this.  Have a great rest of your holiday weekend and go into the holiday season with this reminder, "I am His and He is mine, and so are other people."
